Complete Buddha’s Face Blog Index – January 2011

Complete Buddha’s Face Blog Index
January 2011


New Year arrives with New Year resolutions – my own personal resolution is to continue my active engagement with the blog and try to ensure we have the weirdest, craziest, most inspiring and amazing stories about the Buddha and Buddhism for our growing audience. Thanks for stopping by and getting engaged with the wackiest Buddhist blog on the web.Now as is obligatory when writing copy for the blog index I start a stream of fat or laughing large Buddha statues in home or gardens text but not today - go away no more talk of large stone not hand carved Buddha garden statues please.


“Remembering you are going to die is the best way I know

to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.

You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

Buddha Statues and Images in Gardens - Revisited

Gardens are a perennial favourite of the Buddha’s Face. That’s because a garden is an ideal place to place your stone or hand carved wooden Buddha statue for maximum effect. A garden can be the place you go to take refuge from the world and so it is important you choose the right Buddha statue to enhance your garden to the best effect. So if you are considering a stone or wooden hand carved Buddha statue (meditating, laughing or fat) then read this article on Buddhas in gardens first. In fact I often write about gardens when the topic doesn't even include gardens. That's why when I actually do write about gardens it is a pleasure to actually mention gardens in a naturalistic way.
